This concluding chapter summarizes what the book purports to have accomplished, chapter by chapter. Specifically, it purports to have provided an historical connection to the work of Immanuel Kant, to have successfully argued from rationality to morality, to have considered and responded to recent critics of that argument, to have considered alternative justifications of morality, then to have successfully argued from liberty to equality, to have considered and responded adequately to recent critics of that argument, to have considered alternative justifications for welfare and equality and found them to be wanting in various ways.

Keywords: Kant; rationality; morality; equality; welfare
